I have been modelling 1/76th for many years and hope you find my kits and wargaming interesting and an enjoyable surf!
Bear with me as i get my camera abilities better.

My kits are a mixture of plastic injection, resin and white metal. plenty of local Australian resin kits but also venerable Airfix and Matchbox models too....

Mainly European WW2 which first started out with US forces, then onto UK and then a smattering of Russian- but i realised i had to have someone to compete against..... so along came the Axis kits..

Click on the pictures, they expand and provide better detail.

Hope you enjoy and thanks for all the positive comments

A trio of Preists

Matchbox Preists
a good trio of Arty for back up!


  1. Solid

    Love them, nice bit of 105mm indirect fire support

  2. thanks Geordie

    yes they are very handy- i wonder what a group of Priests is actually called- " a Pulpit of Priests"....

  3. I'd guess it's a "Clergy", but realistically I'd have to go with "Battery" :p

    Nice builds of the kit, I couldn't get the front hull to stick on right with mine.

  4. thanks Arquinsiel

    yes a battery of priests would be correct but the 3 represents a troop

    the detail on these Matchbox priests is probably on par with the Comet- its probably the most bland they ever did

    so "up kitting' them with clutter is a priority

    glueing the hull...thankgod for super glue and Zapper!!

  5. Nice looking Troop/Battery, The M7 is one Matchbox kit I have never seemed to get hold of, the Revell re-issues are a tad overpriced in my eyes.

  6. these are a few years old now.......i actually bought a huge batch of 1/76th Matchbox kits at an auction so dont need much more.
    The Revell ones i agree- look heaps over priced
